Google Is The Best Company To Work For In US, 6th Year In A Row
Google, the company which has been growing continuously in popularity due to its wide range of technological products, has bagged the number one work place position in Fortune's annual list.
The U.S.-based company has been declared the number one workplace in the U.S for the sixth consecutive year. Google has managed to make it to the top of the list for the eighth time in 11 years.
Why Google Is The Best
With an estimated 72,053 employees, the employment in this Icompany, which is located at Mountain View California, is considered by many to be the dream job.
Google ensures that the employees stay happy and satisfied with perks that includes, laundry services, hair cuts, as well lip-smacking food and many more innovative ideas. These reasons are primarily responsible for the company becoming the number one employer in the country every year for the past six years.
Google also extended the parental leave, when company management came to know that an increased number of mothers were leaving the company, which led to 50 percent decrease in attrition rate for working women.
"Town halls held by black Googlers and allies, support for transgender workers, and unconscious-bias workshops (already attended by more than 70% of staff) help foster what employees say is a "safe and inclusive" workplace at this hive of high performers," noted Fortune.
Here's is the Twitter update from Fortune declaring the top three companies.

Procedure Used For The Survey
To conduct one of the longest employee surveys in corporate U.S, Fortune joined hands with Great Place to Work. With feedback from around 230,000 people, the basic score of every company is based on the Trust Index survey feedback.
After that, the workers of the particular organization were questioned about their workplace, their leaders, how well the company supports them professionally, as well their relationship with their colleagues.
Along with this, the Great Place To Work also prepares a Cultural Audit Management Questionnaire of every company. The questionnaire covers details of the organization's compensation benefits, hiring methods, training as well as other programs.
Other Companies To Have Made It To The List
Companies like Wegman's Food Markets, The Boston Consulting Group, Baird, Edward Jones, are few of the other companies in Fortune's list of best companies to work for.
The 100-year old Wegman's food chain, apart from offering flexible schedule, promotional opportunities, also organizes for free cakes during birthdays.
